Super7 x UNKLE for San Diego Comic Con #SDCC2017 + A Look Back at Music & Toys from UNKLE
Further to the earlier single teaser image, Super7 has since unveiled a trio of images for their exclusive UNKLE release for the coming San Diego Comic Con 2017 (July 20–23) … and it’s looking more and more like apparel or wallpaper collage, innit? Of course I'm gagging for “Nosferatu” ReAction action figures, but that's just me toy-dream, innit? HAH
Here are some splendid UNKLE MVs to remind you young’uns about their sounds! Apologies for the multiple video postings, but I'm betting UNKLE-fans (like myself) might enjoy the music ... AND I really wanna geekout here, innit? Heh :)
WHO-IS: "Unkle (often stylised as U.N.K.L.E. or UNKLE, occasionally known as UNKLE Sounds) are a British musical outfit founded in 1994 by school friends James Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy. Originally categorized as trip hop, the group once included producer DJ Shadow and have employed a variety of guest artists and producers." (Wiki)
The “Nosferatu” character - designed by Futura - had been seen on UNKLE’s album covers i.e. 1998’s Psyence Fiction (which I've always regretted SELLING OFF decades back!!!!!) and 2003’s Never, Never, Land - and has been the iconic character image/mascot for UNKLE, IMHO.
Tis been a long while since we’ve had any UNKLE toys - from as far back as 1998 (above), thru to the more “familiar” forms like Futura’s “Nosferatu” … and it’s about high time since we’ve had NEW UNKLE collectibles, innit? “Wishful-thinking”, of course :)
And while the toys might be from the “past”, the music of UNKLE continues forth, with the featured trio of MVs below from their latest (5th) studio album; 'The Road Pt. 1’, released this June!
